Thread: sleep or yield?

    sleep or yield?


    javadoc indicates that thread.sleep will not cause a loss of ownership of
    any monitor.

    Yield will cause a currently executing thread to pause and allow other threads
    to execute.

    What would be better to use when implementing a one thread to monitor another?
    Or should I just set the monitoring thread's priority lower than the executing
    thread?

    Instead of all that , u can use
    shared data that will change reflecting the status of one thread.
    Or u can go for mutual reccrsion which calls mathod of
    each other infoming the status of each each.
